Beach Front House

Hi everyone! My hubby booked our room this weekend at the beach which I'm super excited about. I am so over this cold weather it's not even funny.
With the excitement of a vacation and warmer weather around the corner I created this fun little project using the Sizzix Gift Card Holder, House. I think I'm going to use this as a page in my vacation mini to the beach though. 
While I was out shopping Saturday I found  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 3 Oliver Collection (48 sheets of glittery goodness) at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $10 so I used a sheet from that for the house base. I cut from the Tim Holtz Alterations Scallops die the roof. I used some corrugated cardboard that I put back to create the roof. I distressed and inked it to give it that weathered/rough look. I also fussy cut the anchor from the Creative Imaginations Beach Front Collection…simply gorgeous paper.


The clasp I found at Hobby Lobby too. I thought it would be perfect addition along with the buttons and dew drop that I used to create a gable.


I embossed some Bazzill cardstock with the Sizzix Snowballs embossing folder and added that to the inside of the house. The flap I created a pocket to hold small tags or keepsakes from my trip. The doorway I figure I can either add a photo and/or I can slip more memorabilia behind the "wall". :-)


I hope you have enjoyed my take on this Sizzix Gift Card Holder, House and if you have any questions let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
